We really wanted to find a platform that would create that extra layer of security. We’ve had video visits from 44 states and 12 different countries. Incarcerated people have something to look forward to with these video visits. I can even see it helping with disciplinary issues internally and potentially shifting our culture. I think it gives people hope.

Maintaining family contact is a huge benefit to people behind the walls, it should not be a fanciful goal. I don’t view it as an extra privilege for a few. Of course people want to know what’s happening |behind the walls. I want there to be ease of communication and to make it as cost-efficient as possible.

Ameelio's video calling platform is so easy to use — it's going to save us COs an abundance of time, make our work more efficient, and get our prison population reconnected with their families at no cost.
